Abstract

A 29-y-old woman from Congo Democratic Republic was admitted to hospital with dyspnoea of 5-months duration. Chest X-ray showed left white lung and infiltrates of the right superior lobe. The patient underwent left pneumonectomy. Histopathological examination showed pulmonary cavitary lesions and bronchectasis full of branching septated fungi. Cultures yielded Scedosperium apiospermum.
